**********PLEASE READ VERY, VERY CAREFULLY BEFORE BIDDING...MUST BE VERY CREATIVE
WE WANT TO MAKE SURE THAT THIS PROJECT IS EXTREMELY SUCCESSFUL. MAX BUDGET FROM THIS IS UP TO $250 USD (This is the price, so PLEASE DO NOT BID ABOVE, as this is the final price, and must be in this specified budget). WE ENCOURAGE, PLENTY OF QUESTIONS FOR UNDERSTANDING…THIS WILL BE A BE A VERY EXCITING PROJECT…
We are looking for a VERY creative design team to create for us the ultimate contemporary urban culture magazine template, from start to finish. It will be up to about 36 pages—this includes a few pages that will call for a few variation pages (meaning several designs to switch from—including the cover). MUST be HIP design—as we are catering to youthful people 18-35, who are often times VERY visual…
The template will consist of a front page and a back page--master pages etc.…with all other pages in the middle. It is to have a chic, contemporary, urban design (like some of the top urban magazines), and we should be able to re-use the template, easily, every month with no problem (change colours, pictures, text, etc.) The template must be in Indesign CS2. With each page that you design, you must give instructions on how to add the text, change the background picture, colours, change header, footer and remove pages or add pages where need be. The first cover will need to be designed by you, and then we will need instructions on how to change the pictures and text. THE TEMPLATE HAS TO BE CUTTING-EDGE AND HAVE THE WOW-FACTOR SO PEOPLE WILL WANT TO PICK THE MAGAZINE UP!
We will provide you with subject headings for each section of the template, and these will need to tie-in to a contents page for the template. We will also provide you with a description of each section, so you will be able to design the template around what the content of that section will be on an ongoing month by month basis.
We will also supply you with the number and positions for advertising which we would like filled-in with dummy ads that are easily replacable with real advertising or other text/articles etc.
VERY IMPORTANT!!!! YOU MUST BE ABLE TO CREATE A TEMPLATE…SO THAT WE CAN WORK FROM IT, AND PROVIDE GOOD, THOROUGH INSTRUCTIONS WITH EACH PAGE THAT YOU DESIGN; INCLUDING THE COVER PAGE…IF YOU DESIGN SOME THINGS IN PHOTOSHOP AND BRING THEM OVER, AND THEN YOU MUST PROVIDE INSTRUCTIONS FOR THAT AS WELL. WE WANT YOU TO GIVE INSTRUCTIONS AS YOU DESIGN EACH PAGE…SO, THAT WE CAN TEST…
Everything is to be owned by us, and we’ll need to be given all original files. We will also need a PDF of the template as well.
If you think that you can handle this, then please do bid and show your best work!
We do require revisions until everything is satisfactory & you will need to be available to answer questions until we grasp the template.
We will use you for future revisions, cover designs etc. as this will not end with just the magazine template…
SAMPLES MUST BE PROVIDED.
